This is an amazing shoe. It has great impact support, and is great for vert and street skaters alike. The bottom is gummy and tacky and the suede leather is highly durable. The only downside is that it doesn't have very good board feel, but everything else about it is great. Buy this shoe!
Pros: stylish, durable, comfortable, good grip, great impact support
Cons: poor board feel

These trucks are okay. I preffered my thunders more though. They are actually pretty heavy, despite what they say about the magnesium. They turn pretty well. Get something else though. Thunders are really light, and have cool designs on them. You can get them if you want, but i like thunders better,
Cons: too heavy, non-durable

This thing has massive pop! The first time i used this i saw that i could pop higher than with my old enjoi. You can see the pop that your getting, but you dont feel anything abnormal, like you olleing and the the flip p2 spirt then make you go higher, none of that. It feels just like a normal deck with massive pop. I never break boards, but this one got pressure cracks quickly. I dont know how durable it is because i only got it about a week ago, pressure cracks came real quickly, but i cant say it isnt durable.
Its really light, and i even got the 8, but its still light. The concave is really nice, pretty deep, and if youve read a gonnagopro review before, you know that i love it deep. i'm trying a plan b prolite next, and then ill probably keep skating which one i like more for a while, but i'm gonna skate flip p2s too. I highly recommend p2s, and i love the flip team, they totally rock! P2 ROCKS!
Pros: lightweight, stylish, great pop, great feel, flip team rocks, p2, massive pop!, rowley, p2 for life!

This is a sick skate shoe. Perfect for all terain. The Fader has amazing padding, but the board feel is also great. You might want to get a half a size smaller , cause it's slighty big. They seem to be durable, but not as much as the osiris's.
Pros: good board feel, stylish, comfortable, good grip, good impact support
Cons: not as durable as osiris

This is a really nice deck. Does not chip easily, super thin, and really strong. I will warn you this deck has a deep concave. I love that, but some people don't. You really can notice the resin 7 glue, it definately works. This boards really thin. The pop is great. Had it since Jan. 2010 the pop is the same as when it began. (this is no typical board) I don't know how much about limited or wide terrain it has, you will read that gonnagopro (me) is from Alden, New York, trust me, This is no where nere the city, I'm closer to Ohio that NYC, do not be fooled, I have no good skatespots near my house. (that makes the gonna go pro thing a bit harder than you lucky dudes out in Cali.) Anyways I sorta ran away with theat thing, sorry. Okay, the board, It's great, deep concave, durable, pretty light, dude, I love that resin 7. After getting this board, I promised myself that I would only get thin boards, trust me, it helps. Almost, Enjoi, and blind have the resins. Plan B has prolite, and Plan B and Flip have p2s. Get them the thin helps more than you know. It's like having a deck thats light, snappier, thinner, poppier, durabler...er, and overall better. This thing rocks. Go for the thin boards.
Pros: lightweight, great pop, durable, great feel, deep concave, super thin (i rave about it), snappy

Pros: durable, good grip, great speed, super hard

These trucks are okay. If there's a great deal on them I might get them, but other than that, don't. They are pretty heavy, only have two washers per axle, can't turn without new bushings, and squeak every time you turn. Don't buy.
Pros: durable
Cons: does not turn well, needs bones or doh doh bushings, squeaks when you turn, only have two washers per axle

I love these shoes! Perfect! The Bronx is an amazing buy. High ankle support, good board feel, shock obsorbing and cool. My favorite skate shoe that I bought yet. The laces haven't worn out and the toe cap is as good as new when I do kickflips. A must-have!
Pros: good board feel, stylish, durable, good ankle support

Torey Pudwill is unstoppable: Waist high pop, slides for days, and a killer signature shoe. All hail T-Puds! The suede upper provides great durability and style. Mid-top silhouette offers additional ankle support. Highly flexible for ultimate board control. Custom embroidery details. Non-slip vulcanized outsole. "I’m really into skating in mid-top shoes. So right then and there I wanted to do a mid-top cause I wanted a shoe that I was comfortable in. And I wanted it to look cool when it was all beat up and stuff. I just wanted something I knew I would feel good in, skating. And I never had a skate shoe that fits on my foot as good. I’m not trying to hype it up but realistically; I can’t skate in any other shoe." -Torey Pudwill
 

Does it have any padding on the sole?

Whats the difference between Mid and Low Trucks?

i dont know if i should buy low or mid magnesium trucks....

whats the difference?
The difference between lows and mids is a 1/4 of an inch. mids are a quarter of an inch higher than lows. You can really tell the difference while you're riding. I ride mids because they don't get wheelbite. If you ride 50mm or less wheels you should get lows, because they're a little lighter. 51-53mm should use mids. and 54-60mm should use highs. Then theres riser pads which generally raise the trucks by a 1/8 of an inch so you can have something a little in-between.
